Gotta wonder how much longer Brandon is out. Would be nice to have him get a few games in prior to the St Louis series. given his prior statement, I can't imagine him sitting out those games.

Additionally, any word on Nix? He was playing so well for a brief spell prior to the injury, would be nice to have that guy back for the stretch run.

Bruce hitting leadoff against a lefty worked out great Friday night, anyway.

Altho three more homeruns from the leadoff spot is probably unfair to request...

This is the Bailey we've seen the past few years. He got unlucky on the Wolf single, more unlucky on the Weeks single, and then the red mist descends and he's a liability.

If Fielder does steal on Homer, Dusty should just go out to the mound and kick him in the arse....

While the pickoff was nice, and the hits have been of the 'seeing eye' variety, the steals have been avoidable with better attention to the runners. At some point it does feel like it gets in Homer's head....
